AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 17
I’d give you my advice, I suggest you run and hide, live to fight another day. But you’ve made up your mind, so I will stay here by your side and liveblog this here pro wrestling show, folks.
The show opens into the intro video.
We get a highlight reel for Full Gear.
Commentary welcomes us to the show and hypes up tonight’s card.
We get a promo from the Elite where a depressed Kenny Omega says he hasn’t watched the match back and people have been asking when he gets his rematch, and frankly he’s a little disgusted. Not in Hangman, he won, and he wishes him congratulations, but there are things he needs to change, and not here, and he asks the Young Bucks to hold things together while he’s gone.
Adam Cole says he will, but Kenny clarifies that he wasn’t talking to him, and the Bucks awkwardly say they all will hold the fort down without Kenny.
In the ring, the Dark Order are present and John Silver proclaims National Cowboy Shit Day and introduces your new AEW World Champion, “Hangman” Adam Page.
Page comes out with his jacket zipped and opens it to reveal the title before strolling his way to the ring.
Hangman gets on the mic and says he’d love to celebrate National Cowboy Shit Day, and he knows this championship means a lot and carries a lot of responsibility with it, and he knows that he’s got the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, next.
Enter Bryan Danielson.
He grabs a mic and slides into the ring to address Page directly.
He says he came out to say one thing, congratulations, and he offers Page a handshake, which is reciprocated. He’s not gonna lie, he’s super excited for this match for the AEW World Championship, but to be fair he’s a little surprised and disappointed that it’s not Kenny Omega standing across the ring from him right now.
Adam says he beat Omega’s ass at Full Gear, and if he’s not mistaken, he did it in less than thirty minutes, too. Danielson says he didn’t want to come out here and start anything, but to be fair he’s not going to be wrestling a guy dressed like a Ghostbuster, he’s here to kick some ass.
And if you want to see Cowboy Shit, apparently that doesn’t mean wrestling, because he’s out here wrestling every week and Page is out here flapping his gums. When Danielson won the WWE Championship at WrestleMania he wrestled the very next day, which gets him some boos and he says of course Virginia boos hard work.
Page says if he wants to wrestle for the title he doesn’t see any reason to wait, and the crowd is all in on the match happening tonight, and Dragon says normally he’d be up for it, but he’s out here and ready to wrestle in his gear... and Page is in his street clothes and a horrible leather jacket.
Everybody told him Hangman Page has a long list of excuses to explain why he’s failed, and he doesn’t want to beat him for the world title and have the excuse that he wasn’t ready. Page says he knows Virginia is for lovers, but he’ll still happy to fight, and the Dark Order end up having to pull them apart!
Bryan tells him to let his little friends stop them because he knows he doesn’t really want to fight right now and everybody knows he’d kick his ass anyway! That gets Page to try and rush him, Danielson ducks out of the ring, and we go to break.
“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson vs. Evil Uno
Circling, collar and elbow, Danielson drops down for a leg pick into the half crab but Uno crawls for the ropes and forces the break! Bryan has ‘til five, referee, test of strength, falling back into a wristlock, wrenching the fingers, stepping over, side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, shoulder block and Evil takes Dragon off his feet!
Drop down, leapfrog countered into a Manhattan Drop, Oklahoma roll for two! Danielson slaps the taste out of his mouth, chest kicks, throwing him into the turnbuckles, chops and kicks, half-halch suplex into a one-foot pin! Uppercuts for chops, Bryan takes him off his feet and hammers him with kicks to the kidneys in the corner, again reminded referee Aubrey Edwards that he has until five!
Evil gets up and offers his chest but Bryan piefaces him! And again, trying to get a rise out of him but Uno won’t back down! The third gets a slap, forearms and chops into the corner, sidestep the charge, off the ropes, Evil with a tijeras, Danielson ducks a lariat, chest kicks, caught, leaping neckbreaker... NOPE!

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson wins by referee stoppage with a triangle choke.
Post-match Bryan makes Aubrey peel him off of Uno and break the hold!
Tony Schiavone interviews Danielson in the ring.
He says he came out here to congratulate Hangman, and because of his behavior he ended up kicking Evil Uno’s head in. So until he fights Adam Page for the title, he’s gonna take each member of the Dark Order and kick their heads in! Next week they’re in Chicago, and he wants Colt Cabana, if he’s got any nuts he’ll kick his head in in Chicago next week!
We get a Maxwell Jacob Friedman promo from right after his match on Sunday.
He says all you hear about is how great all these guys on the roster are at wrestling and everybody says he’s only good on the stick, but screw that and screw you, because while you viscerally hate his guts you have no choice but to admit just how damn good he really is.
He beat Darby Allin with a headlock takeover, and right about now he’s really excited to go to Norfolk, Virginia, and he makes the universal “coming for the title” gesture as he says he doesn’t know what’s next for him.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial we get a recap of CM Punk vs. Eddie Kingston.
Tony Schiavone interviews Eddie Kingston but before he can talk Daniel Garcia and 2.0 roll up.
They berate Eddie for always having a sad story and for not lasting as long against Punk as Garcia did. Kingston tells them to shut up and number one, Garcia lets two grown men call him their son and he should be a real man and stand on his own. But he knows him from Buffalo and he knows what they have to do, and he’s gonna fight him.
Butcher and the Blade (Andy “Butcher” Williams & Pepper “Blade” Parks) vs. CHAOS (Orange Cassidy & Tomohiro Ishii)
Ishii and Williams to start but the Butcher immediately tags out to Blade. Laying forearms in, Tom is unmoved, Parks off the ropes, shoulder block comes up empty and the Stone Pitbull lays him out with a single forearm and throws him in the corner for the tag!
Double whip, Cassidy doesn’t complete the double elbow, falling splash for one! The probing kicks, hands in his pockets, off the ropes, dropkick and Andy gets the blind tag! Orange puts his sunglasses on and turns around just in time to get freight trained by Butcher!
Straight suplex, throwing him in the corner and Williams and Parks start working him over! Throwing him to the floor, the Bunny puts boots to him, Matt Hardy gets a cheap shot and we go to break!

Cassidy perches, off the top, crossbody caught by both heels and they ram him into Ishii to take them out! Double Stundog Millionaire, tilt-a-whirl tornado DDT on Blade... SO CLOSE! Powerbomb/neckbreaker combo on Cassidy... ISHII BREAKS IT UP! He clears the ring, drags Orange over, tag made!
Trading forearms with Butcher again, backing him into the corner, chops and forearms, Matt Hardy on the apron for interference and referee Bryce Remsburg pulls him away! Bunny in the ropes, Tom gets a snap German suplex, Blade has the knucks but Rocky Romero pulls him out of the ring!
Cassidy dives on Hardy and Parks and throws Blade in! Off the ropes, Ishii with a lariat, he gets him up...
CHAOS win by pinfall with the vertical drop brainbuster from Tomohiro Ishii on the Blade.
Tony Schiavone interviews Andrade el Idolo and FTR backstage.
El Idolo grabs Jose by the lapels before calling Cody Rhodes and PAC out and saying he’s a better wrestler than either of them and he’s beaten them clean. Cash wheeler says they were robbed and if Cody Rhodes and PAC and the Lucha Brothers want to get in their business, they’ll bring Malakai Black in and make it an eight-man.
Tully Blanchard calls Arn Anderson out and says he’s not like Jose, he’s got one more left in him.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for Tay Conti where she talks about her loss and how she’s learned from it and will win next time she gets a shot.
Dr. Britt Baker, DMD and her entourage are interviewed backstage.
Britt says she’s getting tired of carrying the women’s division and she’s gonna pass the spotlight to future TBS Champion Jamie Hayter. Tony Schiavone reminds her that Thunder Rosa is Jamie’s opponent, and Britt says she’ll be irrelevant after Hayter beats her.
Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose (AEW TBS Championship Tournament Quarterfinal Match)
Trading forearms right away, Shida off the ropes, flying knee caught and Rose throws her in the corner! Hikaru sidesteps, Nyla turns her back around for body blows in the ropes!

Powerbomb, nearfall, Cyclone Kill but Nyla counters into a Stretch Muffler and stands up! IT’S OVER!
Nyla Rose wins by submission with a standing Stretch Muffler.
Commentary gives us a quick overview of the TBS Championship Tournament as it stands.
Malakai Black cuts a promo about how he and Andrade and FTR will haunt Cody Rhodes and turn the air he breathes toxic and make him realize the small part he plays in the massive equation now unfolding in front of him.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance, flanked by Shawn Spears and Wardlow.
Spears tries to get the crowd to shut up before MJF speaks, to no avail.
Friedman says you’re looking at the guy that checks all the boxes and he is easily the most complete pro wrestler on the planet. He’s the man who will start a bidding war in the year 2024, the past, the present, and the future of professional wrestling, and moreover, if he wanted to, he could take your hometown horse and send him straight to the glue factory.
And nobody in this locker room is on his level.
Enter CM Punk.
He stares Max down for a minute before Friedman offers a hand and introduces himself, and Punk just smiles and leaves him hanging as he turns to leave the ring!
Tony Schiavone interviews Darby Allin backstage.
Allin says MJF didn’t break him mentally and they’ll wrestle again, and he’s not taking any time off and he’s gonna fight the biggest and baddest.
Gunn Club roll up and Billy Gunn accepts the challenge and tells Darby to say when. His sons mock Allin as we go to break.
Back from commercial, Adam Cole and the Young Bucks cut a promo.
They call Christian Cage and Jurassic Express out for the worst night of their lives, and inform us that the Young Bucks aren’t cleared to compete currently, and on Rampage this week, he’ll team with Bobby Fish against Jurassic Express. Fish mocks the Express and the Bucks stop him short of saying “Undisputed.”
Dante Martin & Lio Rush vs. the Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster)
Rush and Martin take the Acclaimed out during their entrance!
Dante and Bowens to start, Anthony caught up in the corner, quick tags and a lightning fast pace, drop toehold into a basement dropkick, only two! Bowens turns things around on Martin, trading chops, whip reversed, Caster trips him up and throws him into the barricade!

Enzuigiri, Dante with the double jump moonsault, he rolls Anthony over for Rush... DRAGON’S CALL! IT’S OVER!
Dante Martin & Lio Rush win by pinfall with Dragon’s Call from Rush on Anthony Bowens.
Post-match, Team Taz come down.
They congratulate Lio and Dante on the team and Taz offers condolences on the loss of his grandmother before pivoting to say their offer to Martin was just business, nothing personal. And they’ll be patient, they waited very long for Will Hobbs, and today is his one-year anniversary of joining Team Taz.
And Hobbs has accomplished a lot, just look at him! So here’s the deal, if Dante chooses Team Taz it’ll be the start of a Hall of Fame-worthy career, but the choice is his.
Christian Cage and Jurassic Express cut a response promo to the Elite.
Christian says they’re proud of what they did and you know you never bring a fish to a gun fight. Jungle Boy says you can put them through tables and hit them with chairs, but they’re better now than they’ve ever been, and they’ll see him on Friday night.
Commentary confirms Gunn vs. Allin for Rampage, as well as Jade Cargill vs. Red Velvet in a TBS quarterfinal, and we get a video package for that one.
Back to the hype, commentary moves on to next week’s Dynamite, featuring Danielson vs. Cabana and the FTR/Luchas atomicos match, to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Lucha Brothers cut a promo and Alex Abrahantes translates.
They tell FTR to stop crying and they’re pathetic for all the cheating and failing. Rey Fenix, in English, says that Death Triangle and Cody Rhodes will have something special for them, because they’re the best four-man team in the universe.
Jay Lethal gets an inset promo.
He says no one has ever stepped through the Forbidden Door and won the gold, but tonight he’s gonna do it, and he warns Guevara to be ready for the toughest fight of his life.
Jay Lethal vs. Sammy Guevara (c) (AEW TNT Championship)
Collar and elbow, Guevara with a go-behind, leapfrog, up and over, Lethal Injection almost countered right into the Feast Your Eyes but Lethal slips out! Figure four leglock attempt, reversed into La Casita, no dice, trading pinning predicaments into a stalemate!

Jay Lethal with a tope, Guevara catches him... BRAINBUSTER ON THE FLOOR! Continuing to brawl, Sammy gets him on the timekeeper’s table and goes up top, senton atomico... LETHAL ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! Back in the ring, ducking and dodging, superkick gets a chop block, Jay with an inverted suplex facebuster... NOPE! Spinning toehold into the figure four leglock!
Sammy desperately crawling, reaching, and he gets the ropes to force the break! Can’t get Jay up for the backbreaker rack, a knee connects, Dragon suplex he lands on his feet, another knee knocks Lethal down! Off the ropes, a third knee, he’s fired up, Argentine backbreaker rack...
Sammy Guevara wins by pinfall with the GTH to retain the AEW TNT Championship.
